Subject [jira] [Created] (QUARKS-135) Base NOTICE file couple be simpler
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2016 07:31:25 GMT
Justin Mclean created QUARKS-135:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Base NOTICE file couple be simpler
                 Key: QUARKS-135
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QUARKS-135
             Project: Quarks
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Justin Mclean


I think the current NOTICE file could be reduced to this:

Apache Quarks (incubating)
Copyright 2016 The Apache Software Foundation

This product includes software developed at
The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).

Portions of this software were developed at
International Business Machines Corporation, copyright 2015 and 2016.


IMO there's no need to list copying headers from the initial software grant. Only relocated
headers that have been changed to Apache with the owners permission [1] need to be added to
NOTICE. It's good to try and keep NOTICE as small as needed to make it easier for downstream
projects [2]

1. http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#headers
2. http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html#mod-notice

It will still require additions due to bundling Apache licensed software containing NOTICE
files.
